I have used QD mounts and always found them convenient. using ADM, ARMS, and LaRue, I have never hade problems reproducing my zero.

ore and more , I am seeing companies like AERO Precision selling a lot of fixed mounts. Is there a benefit to this system??
Thanks YPH

Many of us have realized that we keep our scopes mounted on one rifle for extended periods at a time. Maybe even for the life of the scope or the rifle, whichever comes first.

Fixed mounts are generally lighter, cheaper, and less things to snag -- if moving around is what one does with a rifle. I have QD mounts and they work just fine. I doubt that I will buy any more, however.

I use QD's on all my AR's and any semis and fixed rings on all bolt actions.
Never had a zero issues on any of them.
ADM, Larue, Bobro, Seekins.

I use Warne QDs on my AR and Mini 14. Will pick up a set of QDs for my Ruger PC, too. I use Warne Fixed on everything else.

Well, I was going to give a non QD Mount but there was an excellent deal in the classifieds on an ADM that I could not pass up. Roll Eyes

I like Bobro and Kinetic development. Would never buy LaRue as its a friction mount as opposed to a clamp like the aforementioned.

I tend to never / hardly ever move scopes around. So I just buy fixed due to generally being cheaper.

But say if you had some $2K - $3K glass you wanted to move around between guns. Then the QD would make sense to me.

I stopped buying QD mounts and pretty much only use Geissele and Spuhr. My optics don’t get moved around and in the off chance they do, the RTZ when torquing down the bolts is very good.

If it has iron sights I like a removable mount. If it’s a bolt gun or otherwise doesn’t have irons, I’ll use fixed. Sometimes I just enjoy removing the optic and shooting irons.

I don’t really have a “need” for quick detach mounts, I just seem to get them over fixed. I like having the option even if I don’t use it.
